Sounds of The 90s: The Remixes V. 2

Monday, March 7th, 2011

As promised monthly, here is the latest of Sounds of The 90s: The Remixes Volume 2. Each month we’ll be bringing you 10 remixes of the 90s we hold near and dear to our hearts. Let’s reminisce on these tracks and remember why we’re still listening to hip-hop today. Why we’re still on blogs such as ours where we get to relive the greatest era our music has ever seen.  As always, if you have a favorite remix and would like it to be included on future volumes be sure to send it our way or post it up on our forum. Look for the return of Sounds Like The 90s tomorrow! –PhilaflavaDownload V. 2

Saturday, July 17th, 2010

Da King & I – Flip Da Scrip (DJ Premier Remix) CD Single 1993

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

Here we have the CD Single of Da King & I ‘Krak Da Weazel/bw Flip Da Scrip (Remix)’. The main reason I bought this CD Single was for the Flip Da Script (Remix) remixed by DJ Premier. Premier laced them a great beat with jazzy gang starr flavor. Krak Da Weazel is probably my favorite track on Contemporary Jeep Music after Tears. It’s great to own this forgotten Premier Remix on CD! Enjoy,

Fifty Remixes You Need To Hear (1-10)

Monday, January 5th, 2009

This is a RAP NERD VOLTRON in full effect, duns amd dun-ettes. The entire T.R.O.Y. regular staff (Admiral, Blockhead, Philaflava, Roy Johnson, Schenactady Fan, Thun, ThomasV, Verge) put our heads together to come up with a list of Fifty Remixes that YOU need to hear as soon as humanly possible! Take note that this is not a list of the “best” remixes ever (though many are contenders) or even our very “favorites,” (though some qualify) but simply a list of fifty great remixes (interpreted somewhat loosely to include songs that are essentially remakes or sequels) that we think you’ll enjoy. We tried to leave out extremely obvious picks (“Scenario” 7 MCs Remix, “I Got’Cha Opin”, and the like) but we also kept the list fairly accessible and mostly confined to crews that were signed and put out actual albums. We’ll be bringing you ten picks every morning this week, so join the T.R.O.Y. Movement and spread the word via Twitter, Facebook, Digg, the message boards and blogs you frequent, text messages, and what have you. Enjoy, and be sure to leave some (hopefully not hateful) feedback.
1. Eric B. & Rakim “Microphone Fiend” (45 King Remix)

2. Leaders Of The New School “International Zone Coaster” (SD50s Remix)

This one is a pure adrenaline rush, and it’s easily one of our favorite L.O.N.S. tracks. Produced by Dante Ross of the SD50s.
3. Slick Rick “It’s A Boy” (Large Pro Remix)

Quite possibly the dopest remix that the Large Professor has ever produced, and that’s saying something. Extra P utilized an incredible Cal Tjader sample for this one. Check out out 2CD set of Cal Tjader samples.

4. Artifacts “Ultimate” (Showbiz Remix)

5. De La Soul “Breakadawn” (De La Remix)

A slammin’ remix that doesn’t get mentioned too often. While it’s hard to outdo the original, this one definitely comes close. That “Dawn Brings Smoke” beat is outstanding.
6. 3rd Bass “Product Of The Environment” (Marley Marl Remix)

7. Organized Konfusion “Stress” (Extra P Remix)

8. Das Efx “Microphone Master” (Domecracker Remix)

9. Da King & I “Tears” (Darp Vibe)

10. MOP “Rugged Neva Smoove” (Premier Remix)

Here are all 10 of them in one file:

Tune in tomorrow morning for selections 11-20.

One of the dopest Youtube contributors has to be my man Dan from VintageHipHopSeattle. Below are some of my favorite videos he has posted on his page. But do yourself a favor and check it out yourself because you’ll be entertained for hours.

I can’t tell you how much joy this brings me. Talk about reminiscing, I remember staying up late to watch Pump It Up or YO! with a St. Ides in one hand and a pen in the other to write down all the names of the videos. My boys and I would just watch from beginning to end before we took our blunted asses to Denny’s. Of course while riding out we’d play the very tracks you’ll see below. God bless the internet and God bless VintageHipHopSeattle!
